It won't be appreciated my saying this but, if The Beatles had reunited in 1975 (urgh!) and played at Wembley Stadium, I'd have gone to watch Hendon v. Walthamstow Avenue two miles down the road instead.

One can only imagine the appalling clothes, as opposed to their previous concert in '66, that they would be wearing, and I guess a double-headed guitar would be obligatory for George? Once again, urgh!

And.....an orchestra!!!!!!!!!!

It's a great relief to me that they ended in 1970 before they started looking, and presumably sounding. like ELO.
 
The Small Faces reformed for two LPs in the mid-1970s and the memory has virtually been erased, Stalin-like, from the records. Who on earth wanted to see, or now wants to be reminded of, The Small Faces in 1977?

I never knew that Peter Tork was on 'Wonderwall'.

What struck me was how he mentioned Rubber Soul as a kind of poor relation LP, it hardly merited a paragraph, I know he didnt work on it, that was Norman Smith but  many many Beatle fans have that & Revolver as the best 2

I guess maybe he didn't feel qualified to discuss it?

Been alternating between Odessey and Oracle by The Zombies, as I'm still reeling from the concert, and New by Paul, as I'm gearing up for seeing him in 2 weeks time. :)

That's a great Zombies album, BeatleChick. It must have been a wonderful concert and the next one on your schedule will be too, I'm sure!

My daughter went to Florida for a week with a friend and got to swim with the dolphins.  I thought that was pretty cool.

Very cool! She looks so happy. I just saw your latest horse pictures and had to laugh at Gilligan's expression in the second one. Looks like they got things settled just fine. That's so wonderful that Tuxedo can live out the rest of his days in a good home.

I thought it was very good too. It was a while ago that I read it but one thing that stayed with me was the fact that he never was able to know John that well, despite all the time he worked with him. Social dynamics are an interesting thing. John was an interesting thing. ;)

On an unrelated note, I keep looking at your new avatar and wondering when that kid is finally going to break the vicious cycle that's going on. LOL

He never learns Kelley  ha2ha

As has been said its evident that he took to Paul and makes him the sort of unofficial musical director of the band which Im guessing in the later years was true

Just got round to reading this (Im slow when it comes to books)  ha2ha

Its a good read, he certainly does paint poor old George in a bad light as a guitarist

I never knew Paul played the lead on Sgt Pepper LHCB as apparently George couldnt get it right

anyway I recommend it, couldnt put it down actually

Sure can twang those banjo strings

Thanks for that HG. I recall now George's complimentary words on his playing was in the context of him using him on Wonderwall.
